Winner of 2009 USTA “Special Tennis Event of the Year Given in Honor of Bev Earle”

The HC-CTA sponsored Quickstart mixers for the kids – one Saturday we had enough rain to ruin the courts. Everyone waited but it kept misting rain! HC-CTA volunteers, Mike Baer, Pete Landry, Larry Formichella, Carol Rosner and Bevie Walker set up the mini-nets on the Jackson Park rough parking lot surface. All 25 kids, volunteers and parents played QuickStart tennis with foam balls for two hours and no one wanted to quit. We shared a great lesson that day.

Beginner Adult Lessons are offered indoors during winter months (date & times to be decided)

Continuing Seasonal Events

Friday Night Adult Tennis Mixer – Jackson Park This is to encourage fun/social tennis within the community and to also collect food for the local food bank. This is an Adult Mixer and all levels of play are invited to attend. Please come join in the fun of tennis. Invite a friend. And bring a item or two of non-perishable food to help combat hunger within our community. See flyer for more info.

Friday Night Adult Mixers start May 9 at 6 pm at Jackson Park and run every 2nd and 4th Friday of each month. The final mixer scheduled Friday, October 31 will be the “Halloween Hoot”.

Junior Mixers – Intermediate and Advanced Juniors (13 – 17 years of age) are invited to play a Junior Mixer at Jackson Park on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month. These mixers will be coordinated by a volunteer from the HC-CTA and play will be separate from the adult mixer.
